Driver's License in Indonesia

To drive in Indonesia, drivers need to present a valid driver’s license held for at least 1 or 2 years(according to different car rental company).

 

If your domestic driver's license is printed not in English (Arabic, Japanese, Cyrillic etc), an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required when you drive in Indonesia. Please note that an International Driving Permit (often referred to as an International Driver's License) does not replace the requirement for a regular driver's licence. And you must carry your current overseas driver’s license, IDP or translation with you all the time when driving in Indonesia.

 

Tips


Drivers holding a valid driver's license of the 10 ASEAN member countries can use their national driver's license in the nine other countries without the need to obtain an IDP. These countries are Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Brunei, Indonesia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines.

 

UK drivers with the new-style photo card license will need both the paper counterpart and photo card. UK license holders who have a paper license only will also need an official photo for identification when driving in Indonesia.

 

Age Requirement


Minimum age in Indonesia is 18 years(age may vary by car category). Each car rental company has its own age requirements. If you're 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee. If you're 65 or older, you may have to pay a senior driver fee.

 

*Attention! Some car rental companies would have different requirements. Please check Terms and Conditions during the booking process.
